After the debut of the teaser trailer for David Fincher‘s The Social Network, the general population has been wanting more. The video didn’t feature any live-action footage but instead opted for various lines of dialogue from the characters. Even though we’re still in the dark regarding the actual look of the film, some light has been shed on its soundtrack. According to the official website of the rock band Nine Inch Nails, frontman Trent Reznor will score the music for the movie.
Here’s what Reznor posted:
David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I’ve always loved David’s work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on.
Months later, I’m happy to tell you we’re nearing the completion of this and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable.
Lately some of the strangest music and movie collaborations have been taking place and actually working! First Pharrell Williams took on the animated feature Despicable Me and now this. To be completely honest this sounds intriguing and Reznor’s style might work for the film.
The Social Network is based on the book, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, which tells the story behind the controversial birth of the website. It stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Joe Mazzello, and Rashida Jones. The film’s screenplay was written by award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin.
